The festival of Christmas is celebrated all over the world with great pomp & show. 2000 years back Jesus was born as Good-News to mankind. The main purpose of his birth into the world is to wipe away the sins of all, to give peace and everlasting life to his people whom he loves so much. The angel of Lord appeared to Joseph and said “She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, for he will, save his people from their sins” (Mathew 1:21).
Today Jesus is standing at the doors of our hearts and seeking place to be born. If our doors are closed with worldly celebrations, then it is sure that we have no knowledge of the “Holy Bible”. This is possible only if we hear his word and treasure them in our hearts like Mother Mary. “But Mary treasured all the words and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19)
In the old testament God has spoken about his mercy to Abraham, Moses and many other prophets. “Because the Lord your God is merciful God. He will neither abandon you nor destroy you, he will not forget the covenant with your ancestors that he swore to them” ( Deut 4:31). Now at end times God is speaking about his mercy through his son Jesus. Jesus is a merciful God. His love for humankind is so much that he wishes no one should escape from his merciful love. Jesus never desires to punish sinners, but he is willing to heal them through his mercy. “He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction” (Psalm 107:20)

Through you I can see
In you I can do everything.
Holding you I can move forward,
Jesus you are my strength and I will not remain coward.
You taught me what is true and pure love,
In the worst times you thought me how to lean on God,
You are my teacher and you alone are my best friend
Whose teachings are never doubt able and lasts forever.
I will bless you my Jesus,
My Savior and my potter,
When I was shaping evil, you molded me into something unimaginable,
You are my God forever and ever.

Every morning you wake me up,
And give me hope that all the difficulties I can cope up,
You give me a new strength and make me stand up.
And you never let my soul give up.
Jesus is my rock and my salvation,
In him is my trust in times of destruction,
I have a good and never giving up companion
He is my best friend my champion.
Thank you Abba Father for this your love,
Thank you for the gift of your son,
You lighten up my life like a sun,
You restored me, so that I can run the race that you wish me to run
Holy Ghost my strongest hope,
In everything I do I find your help to cope,
Never let me hurt you in my entire life,
And on that day through you my salvation is for sure.
